Richardson endorses Fred Thompson

Monday, March 3rd, 2008 - 6:55 pm PST

Democrat Gov. Bill Richardson boldly crossed party lines and sanity lines today to endorse former Tennessee Republican Senator Fred Thomson. Political analysts were unsure what to make of Richardson’s surprise announcement, but expressed certainty that it would have no impact whatsoever on the 2008 presidential race. In his statement, the newly-bearded Richardson, admitted that he “hasn’t been paying too close attention” to the presidential race since he dropped out January 9, fueling speculation that he may be entirely unaware that Thompson ended his campaign for the presidency two weeks later on January 22.
